Critic Reviews for The Magic Flute (Trollflöjten)
Ingmar Bergman has never before made a movie so warm, happy and innocent... It's as if all this joy has been building up inside him during the great decade of metaphysical films beginning with Persona.
Using the opera's timeless whimsy and inventiveness, the movie replicates a performance on the stage that is so good that it almost makes you forget the participants' ABBA-like hairstyles.
Ingmar Bergman's mounting of the Mozart masterpiece is appealingly conventional.
An absolutely dazzling film entertainment, so full of beauty, intelligence, wit, and fun that it becomes a testimonial not only to man's possibilities but also to his high spirits.
Ingmar Bergman's revived 1975 version of Mozart's opera makes an uncharacteristically playful film for him about what is essentially a custody battle fought on a metaphysical level.
Audience Reviews for The Magic Flute (Trollflöjten)
Everyone else is mental! Giving this film such high ratings. I am a fan of Mozart and I have a high tolerance for lengthy foreign films and musicals, bu this was near unbearable. I usual enjoy the songs from this opera, but they are now banned for a year, because of the bad memories from this film. It's so long and for some reason the camera pans to members of the audience for the first four minutes of the film. And throughout the opera at random points the camera pans to some little girl in the audience watching the opera. I mean WTF?? I thought I was watching the opera. DO NOT RENT THIS FILM!! IT"S SO BORING!
The opera works surprisingly well in Swedish, and, of course, Bergman's adaptation of this wonderful piece is one of a kind.
